Quindlen decides to give up her Newsweek column

Anna Quindlen says reading the entries for the Livingston Awards — given to journalists under 35 — ratified her decision to step aside for a new generation. “They were so thoroughly reported, so well written. Whether local, national or international news, they were just what journalism ought to be. The next time anyone insists the business won’t survive I may bash him with one of these binders, which are heavy with hope for the future.”
